Hedgerows have been used by agricultural civilizations for millennia to fence in animals and establish property boundaries. The custom of planting and maintaining hedgerows arrived from Europe to North America. In North American agriculture, the practice of using and managing hedgerows has become obsolete, and the plants and trees in remaining hedgerows are now seen as having little.

Remnant hedgerows in the United States require more attention from the public and protection, and restorationists could play an important role in their preservation, restoration.
